Okay, let's throw some ideas into the ring. I'll get the ball rolling.

Let me see....how about stop concreting over the countryside to accommodate the replacement population, stop all building work on known flood plains, and start dredging our waterways again now that we are out of the control of the EU (supposedly).

There. I think those suggestions might help. Over to you, Boris.

Don't hold your breath, folks.

Dredging was asked for last year, I don't think much has been done since,  I jut hope the residents are insured  :-\
